Words that contain various letter combinations

This site provides lists of words containing a particular letter or combination of letters. It may benefit those in education, people working on degrees who do a lot of writing, and those taking classes online perhaps.

What sort of word lists does this site contain? In the case of single letters, there are pages such as words containing z. For a word to appear on that word list, the letter z for example must appear anywhere in the word.

In the case of multiple letter combinations where no space is between the selected letters such as words containing qu, those two letters need to appear next to each other in the specified order anywhere in the word for a word to be included in the words that contain qu word list. For example, consider a list of words containing er. On the er word list contained in this reference website, a word such as “ear” having e as the first letter, and r the last letter, and intermediate letters “a” between those two would not be listed on the er page. Also, the letters need to be in the specified order, so the word “report” also does not appear on the er list.

Finally, this site has other posts which are for groups of letters such as b c d where the words on those word lists contain each letter one or more times, but in any order, and the letters do not need to be adjacent to one another.

Probably the easiest way to find the word list you’re looking for is to select from the menu on the left side of the page, or perhaps use the search box for various other sets of letters. While WordsContaining.com doesn’t have anywhere near every combination of letters, the most common ones are mostly included. Listed in the sidebar at right are the most popular posts based on the number of recent views. This menu shows what pages have been frequently viewed by site visitors.

When you’re looking for words with a certain letter or grouping of letters, hope you’ll stop by WordsContaining.com first.
